The most memorable part of the trip was... walking from Yagodina to Trigrad - the path was easy to follow and the scenery was absolutely breathtaking. To be so high up in the mountains with nature and eventually descend to overlook Trigrad on the way down was amazing. (more)Morven Jenkins
Walking in the mountains through unspoilt meadows where the only sounds were birdcalls and an occasional sheep bell was balm to the soul. (more)Jo Cohen Jones

From

Everything was very good. The genuine welcome from every host hotel or guesthouse was excellent. Staying in guesthouses and eating their normal local food. Highlights were Veliko Tarnovo (especially Hotel Gurko), Plovdiv, and the hosts at Boyana Guest House (Vratsa) & Guest House Deshka (Gorno Draglishte) were great fun. (more)Tim Morgan
Both Plovdiv and Rile were interesting and enjoyable and despite communication problems the two homestays were interesting if challenging and the hosts we very friendly and kind. (more)Rodney Mount
Bulgaria self guided walking holiday
From
£564

Memorable parts? Seeing all the beautiful wildflowers. May was a wonderful time of year to be there. Also the very warm welcome we received from local people in the smaller villages. Tips? You need to be aware that the trekking company in Bulgaria promotes the opportunity for solo travellers to save costs by travelling with a couple who've already booked. As you are mainly staying in very small places if someone else books the same dates you are likely to end up spending every evening... (more)Ruth Bradshaw

Seeing a mother bear come to feed and bringing her cub out with her was the perfect end to the Romanian part of the trip. (more)Joyce Ell
Excellent trip with small group size as promised by the company. Unspoilt, beautiful countryside and towns with people who have not caught up with the greed of tourism. (more)Anne Higgins
Brown bear watching holiday in Bulgaria
From
£1,099
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Spending time in the bear hides and being able to watch mother and cubs for over an hour. Tips? Be realistic about what wildlife you are going to see; i.e. walking in largish group (12 + guide) and wariness of local wildlife. Definitely take binoculars for watching bears / other wildlife from hide. Local benefits? Use of small village hotel, local driver and nature reserve guides benefitted local people. Because more and more people are visiting the area with... (more)Simon Knock
Rhodope Mountains walking holiday in Bulgaria
From
£580
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The totally stunning views, the wild flower meadows and the lovely people. We stayed in some beautiful hotels, only one was a little too corporate for us (Mountain Lake Hotel - we were the only visitors and it was very lonely after all the bustle of the smaller family hotels), - our most favourite ones were the family owned and run hotels that were simply charming and the people could not do enough for us and made us feel really welcome despite the language barrier. Particularly... (more)Ruth Kinsella

Memorable parts? Climbing Mount Vidran, the wildflowers in the Pirin and Rila Mountains, city tour of Sofia. Evening strolls in the village Govedartsi to soak up the atmosphere. Watching the cows being herded each evening into the village. Friendly Bulgarians. Good Bulgarian food and wine. Tips? Don't underestimate the fitness needed for the walks. Previous holidays, walks have been easier than grading suggested. Not here the grading is more accurate so the strenuous walks are... (more)Mike Wilkinson

From
£5,475

Memorable parts? Experiences- simply seeing the different cultures and the people Tips? Bring cash for exchanging to local currency. Many of these countries do not have ATMs that take foreign cards or are very difficult to find. Cash is king, both Euro and USDollars work but USDollars are king Local benefits? Partcularly because this trip was in the off season for a lot of these countries having tourists visit spending money in local restaurants, shops and buying souvenirs... (more)Emer Levins

The most memorable was the variety of terrain walking through the Seven Rila Lakes; forests, mountains, frozen lakes, granite, ice and snow, and the warm welcome from everyone I met along the way. (more)Nicola Farrington
The most exciting part was to be able to see & enjoy the country in the snow which would not have been possible without snow shoes. (more)Alan Reimer

From

Memorable parts? Variations of the walks from the rivers forest snow and rock boulders. Tips? Not to book in June as thunderstorms and lighting was against you every day and wet clothes and boots. Local benefits? Just been there on holidays bought in money Overall rating? Quite challenging for all 6 of us. All so altitude took a while to get used to. (more)Paul Molony
